regional power in india, that the united states may not appreciate in the long run. and, of course, the invasion of iraq has destroyed the iraq power, they're forgetting nuclear weapons. iran is the dominant conventional military force in the region. if the united states is there. the united states as its policies to withdraw from iraq, the potential for iran to fill the vacuum is extremely high. that in turn changes the balance of power, orderlies the political dynamic in the arabian peninsula. there are finally important decisions to be made. on the one hand, the united states must rebalance its global policy to deal with issues like russia, to deal with china and so on. at the same time the united states can't simply withdraw, it doesn't have the ability to simply exit and doesn't have an endgame in any of these areas. so we have a very powerful nation, much less possible it might be another circumstances because it's so off-balance. >> host: that's where i was really surprised in a way to look at where you're taking the consequences in that analysis. let's take those three that
know, newspapers sometimes describe pakistanis as quote-unquote paranoid and india-centric. no. we have a region where we will live long after the americans' security concern du jour has passed. we know that from fact. we know it from the cold war. we were the country that provided the intelligence base from which france's gary powers took off for his mission over the soviet union and got shot down. only to have the soviet union threaten us with retaliation because he took off from a base in pakistan without there being any american commitment actually to be there to protect us against that retaliation if that occurred. those are pieces of history. americans are a great nation, and i've said this. you know that this is my little cliche, but i'm going to repeat it anyway because sometimes cliches are good. and that is that americans do a lot of things very well. america is a great nation which has contributed immensely to human progress, the idea of liberty, freedom, the idea of democracy, modern capitalism, globalization, everything. and then, of course, more than any other nation in th
to say a few words about today's bombings in mumbai, india. we condemn these disparate -- despicable acts of violence designed to provoke fear. those who perpetrated them must know they cannot succeed. the indian people have suffered from acts of terrorism before, and we have seen them respond with courage and resilience. we are continuing to monitor the situation including the safety and security of american citizens. at our hearts are with the victims and their families. we have reached out to the indian government to express our condolences and offer support. i will be traveling to india next week as planned. i believe it is more important than ever that we stand with india, dig deep, and reaffirm our commitment to the shared struggle against terrorism. neither of our countries, the russian federation or the united states, are unfortunately strangers to terrorism. it has been a mutual goal of both of our presidents to increase our cooperation in order to prevent terrorists from wreaking their violence on innocent russians, americans, and others come and to bring those who do so to just
. the pakistanis have been worried about india for years. that drives their policy in afghanistan and even in pakistan. i think if we could ratchet up efforts to convene a regional conference, peace conference, including china, russia, india and then the countries in the ren region, including iran, we have a chance of changing the scene. the goal would be a healthy relationship with a country that holds 100 nuclear weapons and is a democratic ally of ours. >> the aid that the president has said he's going to suspend at this point is about a third of the aid they get. hundreds of millions of dollars. the question, i guess, we have, having been told for years it was important to give them this money because it gave us sway and kept other players from stepping in and filling that void. what happens now? couldn't china step in and say you know what, we're happy to give you that cash and sort of move us out? >> they could, although the technology we're supplying, china doesn't have some of it, but they certainly could supply enough of it, maybe lower grade, and work with pakistan to make up for
as both paranoid unplug and india centric. no we have a region where we will live long after the americans security concern du jour has passed. we know that from fact. we know it from the cold war. we were the country that provided the intelligence base from which france took off for its mission over the soviet union and got shot down. only to have the soviet union threaten us with retaliation because we have a base in pakistan. without there being any american commitment actually to be there to protect us against that retaliation if that occurred. those are pieces of history. so many times those of you have had me. >> know this is my little clicÉe but i'm going to repeat it anyway because sometimes clichÉs are good and that is americans do a lot of things very well. america is a great nation which has contributed immensely to human progress, the idea of liberty and the idea freedom and the idea of democracy modern capitalism and globalization and everything and then of course more than any other nation in at least a 200 years. there is one thing americans don't do. two things americans
pipeline, iran-pakistan-india. the u.s. state department stood up and said, this is not going to happen. does it go through anyway as a litmus test? >> i think what was unfortunate is the problem between india and pakistan, that they didn't want -- on continuedian side to rely on the gas on going through pakistan. they thought maybe it should be offshore and so on. i think as far as iran and pakistan is concerned or the two are concerned, the deal is going quite a long way ahead on the iranian side. on the pakistani side there is so many announcements. of course, over 20 years, announcements are announcements, but they seem a bit more serious. >> pipeline politics indeed. it's become a major source of contention between lebanon and israel. they're warning israel to stay away from the country's energy resources but leaders of the hezbollah group calls on them for an energy exploration. maritime dispute over who owns what are escalating already heightened tensions between two countries. we take a special look. >> reporter: under the warm waters of the mediterranean may lie treasures yet u
. we live in a worldwide economy. the competition is no longer down the block. it's china, india and places like that. just listening to the discussion this morning, listening to the different points of view, you expand the different points of view, put them in a polarized poisonous, toxic atmosphere, congress, and it's governing. we can't govern ourselves. is this country ungovernable? it's the question in our minds and the minds of a lot of young people. where are we going as a nation. they go to washington and behave like clowns. that's a huge, huge problem. >> mike's point is spot on. even pat is saying we have a different philosophy on governing. when obama was elected he made promises. after that, he said he would close guantanamo bay. then he saw the information. after the elections, democrats said we would not extend the bush tax cuts, we did it. with larger deal around don't ask don't tell. i think it's important for politicians and those elected to want to govern and be bigger than the moment. remember, peter asked the most important question at the beginning, the real
muslim- majority nation with nuclear weapons. it has neighbors such as india and iran and china and afghanistan. s importance cannot be diminished. the good news is that we are working on our democracy. we have sustained it for three years. hopefully, we will be able to sustain it for a long-term future. we are in the process of normalizing relations with the two neighbors we have had trouble having relations with, afghanistan and india. the tough thing is that we are also thinking of looking at things differently, at instead of sitting at the crossroad of these complex, and we want to see ourselves with the opportunities that this presents. transition is not easy. it will be difficult. it will take time. but we have the clarity of our vision and the intent is there to do it. i will leave all the tough questions for karen to ask and for me to answer during the dialogue. thank you for being here.

on quote, a paranoid and india centric. we have a region with long-lost americans security concern. we know that from fact. we know it from the cold war. we were the country that provided the intelligence base for the mission of a soviet union and got shot down only to have the soviet union take enough with the retaliation without there being any american commitment actually to be there to protect us against that retaliation. americans are a great nation and i said this so many times you know that this is my little clich but i'm going to repeat it any way because sometimes cliches are good and that is americans to a lot of things very well. america is a great nation contributed immensely to human progress, the idea of liberty, the idea of freedom and of democracy, modern capitalism, globalization, everything and then of course more than any other nation in at least the last 200 years of that is great but there's one thing americans don't do in fact to the things americans don't deutsch, one is history. the american attitude to history is -- [inaudible] [laughter] [applause] riss henry f
